Tim Tebow Spends Time With WWII Veteran at Hurricane Irma Shelter

Study Shows 91 Percent of Trump News Coverage Negative


ESPN has come under fire after "SportsCenter" host Jemele Hill tweeted that President Donald Trump is a "white supremacist" who is "unfit and unqualified" to be commander-in-chief.

ESPN's public relations later tweeted a statement, saying that Hill's comments do not represent the position of the network.

On "Fox & Friends" today, Fox Sports 1 host and former ESPN writer Jason Whitlock said the network has "clearly condoned" what Hill did by not taking any action against her.

"I think that ESPN has chosen a lane politically," Whitlock said. "[ESPN President] John Skipper has certainly made diversity in his view a business innovation for ESPN and has moved the company to the left. So I think no action here against Jemele Hill is a clear sign that they're in agreement."

He argued that many media outlets, including ESPN, are controlled by social media, which tends to push people to the far left.

"Attacking the president is a way to get retweeted and liked and to build your following," Whitlock said. "[Hill] just fell into that trap that a lot of us in the media fall into. We're way too addicted to Twitter, and we're way too worried about how many people follow us on Twitter and how many people like us."
